The skin on my face burns and itches as well as my throat..Doc did blood test for common food allergy-negative! wont eat! scared of anaphylaxis now!
2nd opinion: Inhalant or food allergies do not cause prolonged facial burning or itching. However throat itching (provided no throat closure) can be present if someone has eaten a food and particularly certain fruits. The latter is due to cross-sensitivity to a pollen (birch, ragweed). You need to consult a b/c allergist to pin this down. I usually test with the actual fruits instead of extracts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My lover has just been diagnosed with second degree skin burns. I am worried but she acts like it is not a problem. Who can tell me what it means?
Matter of degree: There are 3 degrees of burn-1, 2, and 3 graded by severity. Sunburn would be a typical 1st degree burn, blistering from steam or a hot surface that is very painful would be typical for grade2.

Fast Healing: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
